Females nest together, possibly because those nesting alone have their eggs constantly destroyed by rivals. We put our animal in a situation where he will respond (or learn to respond) to one of two monochromatic lights. I had several students who have opened their own training business and I continue to mentor them periodically when they need a little help. Students will be introduced to and develop knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of psychology including developmental, cognitive, biological, clinical, social, and comparative psychology in relation to animal behaviour as well as gaining an insight into the importance of individual differences and data analysis in psychological studies.

For example, tayras — a members of the weasel family found in Central and South America — hide bunches of bananas inside of bromeliads, recovering them only when the bananas are ripe (Soley et al. 2011). Having already expended energy and perhaps sustained serious wounds in a fight with another male, attacks from females who vigorously defend their offspring may be telling for harem-polygynous males, with a risk of infection. On the other hand it may be thought that those entities cannot be brought to book so easily, and that they will always elude our ken.

The black throat patch or bib of the house sparrow and the dark chest stripe of the great tit are signals of status; dominant individuals have more-conspicuous bibs or stripes than do subordinates and thus have preferential access to food. I did a research project (sent questionnaires to teachers with classroom reptiles), site visits (and found that most were not doing the great job they thought they were), a literature review (herpetocultural and pet reptile literature) which included a survey of my county library system's herp books, and my curriculum project: a 300 page Reptiles: A Teacher's Guide to their Selection and Care in the Classroom handbook (well, okay, a desk or lap book!).
